Spring Days!

My Smarties are all excited about Spring!  We have been learning all about Oviparous animals!  First we brainstormed all of the animals we could think of that come from eggs!  We had quite a list!  Then we divided them up into classifications: reptiles, fish, insects, birds, etc... We then read Chickens Aren't The Only Ones, by Ruth Heller!  Love that book! I have lots of other books to read on this topic, and we will add to our list when we come across something new!  Today we made our spring chicks!  They are just so cute and make the room look so "Springy"!

We also worked on our Rhyming Humpty Dumpties!!!!  I love these!  They paint their egg any spring color they want & add details! Then they choose 2 rhyming words to complete the phrase:
Humpty Dumpty sat on a cat.
Humpty Dumpty sat on a mat.

Here is Tegan's!

These hang from the ceiling to help celebrate Spring!

My Smarties have been such sweeties lately......check out the LOVE I've been getting!
And the hard work!

In hopes of putting an end to the noisy, noisy, NOISY SMARTIES during trash pick up....we started "Magic Trash"!  It really is magical!  I spy a "magic" piece of trash on the floor.  Then I call out "Magic Trash"!  Everyone has to pick up trash on the floor with NO noise!  If they talk they are out!  The Smartie who picks up the "Magic Trash" without talking wins a trip to the treasure box! Today Peter was the winner!  Here he is with his Treasure Box Treasure!!!
Love the BUG glasses!  Thanks Mrs. Schultz!
